TEXAS - When the cook on his shrimp boat went into labour 50 kilometres offshore, captain Ed Keisel grabbed a new roll of paper towels and a first-aid handbook and did the best he could.

He successfully delivered Cindy Preisel's baby boy, even though the baby's feet emerged first.

"I'm no doctor, but even I knew that's not supposed to happen," Keisel said.

"I was so happy and relieved," Cindy Preisel said. "It's hard to put it into words." - Sapa-AP
